South Korea Begins Using Dog Clones For Drug Sniffing

July 20, 2009

South Korea (ChattahBox) – The next era in police animals is here! South Korea has employed six cloned Labradors, all originating from the same canine, in order to sniff out drugs in airports and checkpoints.

The dogs were ‘born’ in 2007, and have received 16 months of intense training in preparation of this job.

So far the efforts of the clones have been successful, and their overall health has risen hopes of using the same methods on future police dogs, in order to save costs and effort.

The cloning was done by a team led by Prof. Lee Byeong-chun of Seoul National University.
